Riverfront Tour

Riverfront Tour

 

The Grand River in what is now Grand Rapids has drawn people for thousands of years. The quiet flow of water winding through downtown used to be very different, gave the city its name, and created one horrible national record. On Discovery Michigan’s Riverfront Tour, learn what happened to the rapids and along its shores that shaped our city into what it is today, including how the Grand Rapids economy is beginning to jump the river. We’ll explore hidden art and riverside attractions that demonstrate how our lives literally flow over and around the city.
